English Files Against Hart In HD2B

Democrat and former Kootenai County clerk Dan English is running for the Idaho House seat now held by Phil Hart. English acknowledges that people are allowed to hold any political views they want, and in Hart's case, have tax protesting views. “But I don't think someone should be free to run term after term unchallenged when their belief and practices about our tax laws are so far out of line with ordinary, hard-working taxpayers who play by the rules, who pay their fair share, and expect everyone else to do the same,” English said in his announcement speech Wednesday. “I can't imagine wanting to even give the appearance that I was somehow using the fact of being an elected office holder as a shield to avoid, or in any manner delay, the responsibilities and timelines that every other ordinary taxpayer must abide by.” Republican Ed Morse has already filed a declaration of candidacy for the Seat B position in Legislative District 2. Hart might not run for re-election/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What is the best strategy for Dan English in trying to win this seat?
